Aside from what I posted above it's same as on Windows, just install
Haskell Platform. There's already a page on Haskell Wiki
http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/GHC_under_Wine though it seems very
outdated. I can update it with my own observations when I get an HW
account, they seem to have switched to manual registration while I
wasn't looking.
